Ken Hall is one of those unsung actors that I love talking to. You wouldn’t recognize his face, but the Motion Capture actor, (is this a new title I just created?) played the alien in TBS’ weird little comedy series People of Earth and recently played the sage, talking monkey Pogo in Netflix’s Umbrella Academy – one of my surprise favorite shows of the year. In this interview we talk about how far Motion Capture performance artists have come and UA and more.
A crime-fighting family of super-powered misfits who have to get past their issues with each other; the murder of one of their own; time-traveling assassins and the end of the world – The Umbrella Academy is not your average superhero series.
Who are they? Check out the featurette below.
The Umbrella Academy premieres on Netflix on February 15th.
On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.
Their time is now – but first they’ll have to solve the murder of one of their own.
The Umbrella Academy premieres globally on Netflix on February 15th. Check out the intriguing trailer below.
